Everyone is saying the same thing just in different ways lol. Yes you can run them but they will rub if you flex it out and take hard turns. You'll have to adjust your driving habits some to run them

im running 33x13.50's on a 10" wide wheel.

i get a bit of rubbing, but i'm also lifting it this weekend. i don't suggest it for a stock truck, that's staying stock. sure it looks cool, but like was said, you have to change the way you drive a bit.

never max t-bars unless you love replacing front end parts..

you want 33x10.5x15, 32x11.5x15, 265x75x16, or 285x75x16 take your pick...

33x12.5x15 on STOCK 15x7 rims works fine with no rubbing minus sway arm...

33x10.5 on stock wheels and 15x8 with 3.25-4" is fine..

Correct only difference is rear block is 1" shorted really doesnt matter..

32.83x11.22x16 close to 33's... 2" leveling kit.. wtf T-bar keys lol?

(if you do an AAL your ride will be alittle stiffer. #1 bars will give you a harder ride as well.) and then go with 285/75's. Those are 32.??x11.?? and you shouldnt have any major rubbing with those. like said above its really all about backspacing. I think i covered everything he was asking. Right?
never max... class one are good for saggy trucks....Class one's on my truck now ride better then my "B" bars... 285x75x16 (32.83x11.22x16)

Dude stop unleshing the Caps lock... take off the flaps... its just bolts.. it goes into the fender flare it looks "ok"

1" lower in rear on T-bar 2wd... 04blackedge and Goody both are 2wd...

I have 01-05 on my 2000 best thing i ever did...

bingo....

dude proof read your posts... 265x75x16 are 32x10.5x16 your prob had some axle walk to do that get some duff bars...

WAT?

anything over a 32" tire doesnt really fit in the wheel well its common...

This is the last time I'm going to say this. The original poster asked if 33s will fit. Yes they will fit. Yes you might have to adjust your driving some so you don't rub. Pick your poison.

Btw look at thesoundmaster, he wheels the **** out of his truck with 33x12.5 and stock suspension.
have you ever looked at Thesoundmaster fenders? um ya... I am on it..

ill try to get my tires on tomorrow if i have time

Didn't ask what would fit w/o rubbing asked if 33's would rub.

Poor guy just joined and already sees arguments one of his first threads lol. Don't worry about it we just "talkin" haha
265 are a great size stock no doubt.. he will live...
